July 17, 2019 (JUBA) - South Sudan is seeking to strengthen cooperation with China to enhance development in the education sector.

The country’s general education minister, Deng Deng Hoc Yai, said Juba seeks to expand the existing cooperation with Beijing in an effort to increase education opportunities in Africa’s newest nation.

Deng, Xinhua reported, also disclosed that they began discussions on a new education agreement that would allow China print more text books for South Sudan and increase exchange programs.

The agreement, he said, would also cover issues of capacity building for the people of South Sudan.

"We have a lot of young people who are learning in China for bachelor, masters and some for PhDs [Doctorate of Philosophy]," said Deng.

"We have also a lot of teachers and head teachers who were taken to China for training and many of them have come back and they are now doing a lot better than before," he added.

Since South Sudan gained independence in 2011, China has reportedly contributed to its education sector by constructing at least three schools, offered capacity building to hundreds of teachers and helped the country print at least 750,000 textbooks.

    USA literally poured billions of US dollars in kind and cash in the education sector without much impact now I don’t how Chinese money would do the trick....Are these regime handlers not just looking for a new source of dime..?

      SS is up for grabs. Its a no-mans possession and all foreigners seeking fast, untethered access to cash are welcome. Crooks, bandits, benydits, prostitutes, pimps, cooks, servants, slaves all converge into SS. So free like a public pit latrine that accepts all shit.

    And the begging bowl routine continues unabated. Wait for the frisson of celebatory comments to appear as though this is not actually shameful. Why on earth do we need China to do something as simple as printing books? These morons seem to think that it’s the responsibility of other governments and private organisations to assume their roles, responsibilities and duties...

        Support in the field of education will be very useful for Sudan, but for students who still do not have the opportunity to study, I can offer an excellent option, you can visit the apa paper writing service by clicking here https://papersowl.com/apa-paper-writing-service , you will find everything you need to write papers of this type, I hope that this will be helpful to you.

    It seems to me that other countries should help Sudan in developing modern system of education. I may also give an advice to students from Sudan just take a look at https://eduloh.com/studymoose-com-reviews/ because there works a lot of professionals which may help you.
